Hello Girls...I know it has been a while, but I am crazy busy with work, and the house. Anyway, I need a little advise. Last Tuesday, I left work with an incredible pain in my backside, right where my butt crack starts. Anyway, it turns out it is a Pilonidal Absess, and it is beginning to drain. PAINFUL. That's all I can say. Here is my predicament. AF was 6 days late. I did 2 tests, and they were (-) I started my PD on Friday 12-09-05, and as of 12-11-05 in the morning, it was gone. Thursday I spotted for about 3 hours, and then stopped. But I find it very strange that I started 12/09, and I stopped yesterday morning. Do you think that the humongus, gigantic, super painful cyst on my rump could cause my cycle to be off? I have never missed a PD, ever. Except with Rorie, and the one I miscarried in June. DH and I would be absolutley ecstatic to have another child, however it is not seeming to be working out. Any advise regarding my weird AF or Pilonidal, please let me know!! Thanks and Loads of Baby Dust to you all!!
